The challenges of managing designed landscapes

Glorious Gardens workshop two update

Date posted: Wednesday, 13 December 2017

The Glorious Gardens team presented draft conservation guidance for designed landscapes at the second stakeholders’ workshop on Monday 27 November.

The guidance, set out as an overarching Conservation Strategy and targeted Landscape Conservation Guidance Notes for landowners, will outline good practice in the management of designed landscapes, recognising the issues and tasks involved, and provide information regarding possible sources of grant funding for landowners. Find out more by watching the video below.

 

During the second of three workshops, the Glorious Gardens team facilitated discussions on the priorities for conservation of designed landscapes and the challenges for those managing and using the landscape, such as how to preserve the visitor’s impression of a wooded valley with a series of designed estates, repairing walls and gateways, to managing the challenges of inappropriate access to the countryside.

The team is now busy developing the drafts on the basis of participants’ input to the workshops. The results will be circulated to confirmed attendees prior to the next workshop on Monday 22 January, as preparation for the discussion of the contents, implementation and legacy for the project.

The workshop will be held at Lanark Lifestyles, 2.30-4.30pm, and is aimed at landowners, land managers, heritage interest groups in the CAVLP area, and local people with a passion for historic designed landscapes.

The workshops form the second phase of the project, following a pilot phase which included research and reporting by volunteers on 12 designed landscapes in the Clyde and Avon Valley, which you can read on the links below, under ‘Related Projects’. The project is managed by Scotland’s Garden and Landscape Heritage (SGLH), and led by MVGLA Landscape Architects. It is supported by Historic Environment Scotland, and Heritage Lottery Fund and LEADER supported Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP).
